Description 

A Smooth and Sexy Brew.

Like golden waves of yeast crashing on a golden beach of golden sand with golden taps spewing golden beer that’s smooth as gold.

A Crisp Blonde Ale. Golden in color, medium in body—she’s brewed with the help and the honey of Durango’s Honeyville™ bees.

This beer is labeled as a blonde ale but that name only is appropriate for the description of the beer’s color; this hoppy ale is WAY too assertive for that boring “Blonde Ale” category! In the aroma, the hops are readily apparent as herbal, spicy, and floral for a character somewhat like noble hops but with a light lemony kick. The hops are again forward in the flavor with a light grainy pilsner malt  and a hint of honey to add background character. This beer finishes crisp and refreshing with a moderate herbal character and spicy hops lingering with hints of honey. In summary, this easy-drinking ale is hoppy, refreshing and crisp. Enjoy!
